United Food Operation Inc

A nonprofit organization

13 donors

Each winter, United Food Operation distributes pallets of food, free-of-charge, to 12 independent food pantries located in the Kanawha Valley of West Virginia. These distributions significantly augment the pantries' limited resources duing the winter's peak demand for their serivces.

Founded in June 1981 by members of organized labor and their employers, United Food Operation, Inc. is supported  by the voluntary contributions of employees, employers, and caring citizens of the Charleston, West Virginia region. It is an all-volunteer effort that operates out of donated warehouse and office space. With extremely low overhead—it pays no salaries, rent, utilities, or expensive fundraising campaign fees—more of its contributions go directly to purchasing food that is distributed to the needy through a network of local food pantires. 

The winter of 2022 expects to see a tremendous need for food, so UFO is increasing its appeals to the broader community. We need your help to help find the resources necessary to meet this need. There is nothing alien about hunger. It occurs right here in our community.

You can help by making a contribution and by sharing this appeal with your friends, family, coworkers and others. Charleston-area employers can assist by allowing their employees to conduct a fundraising effort at work. Every little bit helps.
